Marisa started Crossfit in January of 2014, after years of a friend trying to convince her to give it a try. She instantly fell in love with the sport and have been hooked ever since. Throughout her childhood she was an elite competitive gymnast. Until she started Crossfit, no other activities/sports had given her that constant drive to persevere. "Crossfit has definitely changed my life in a positive direction. Anyone who knew me just a few years ago wouldn't believe what I'm accomplishing now as a Crossfit athlete. It has definitely given me that chance to make and achieve goals and keep a strong focus on my self as a healthy successful individual."
Short term goal: To qualify for the 2016 east coast championships.
Long term goal: To qualify for the crossfit games whether that's individual or on a team or eventually both!
I wouldn't say I have any words I live by or a philosophy, I just give it my all everyday and I know what I produce is a reflection of my efforts.
